There are many reasons why a person might encounter mobility issues; it could be recovering from a sporting injury or car accident, or that you, or a member of your family, are elderly and experiencing difficulty moving around.
Here are a few tips to make your home more accessible for a person with mobility issues.

In the event you are in need of a mobility stairlift in Kettering, there is an established supplier of new and used stairlifts that you can buy or rent. A stairlift can be operated by the user and you don’t need any help to go up or down; simply take a seat and strap yourself in and away you go. The units are silent, do not detract from the décor and are easy to install and remove.
You can buy a walking frame that helps keep you steady, with four non-slip feet to ensure you don’t slip. The frame is height adjustable and the aluminium frame is both light and very strong and can be used inside and out. Some people prefer a walking stick or cane, but the walking frame is more stable.
For many people, this is an alternative to walking and a state-of-the-art mobility scooter has many great features and can carry up to 100kg. This can change a person’s life, enabling them to visit local shops and get out for some fresh air; talk to a local mobility aids supplier for more information about mobility scooters.
There are many ways that you can become more mobile in and around the home.
